I download lots of sample tracks from the web and after completion as soon as I click to play, the track automatically gets added to my itunes library showing as a new album.

This is going to result in my itunes getting very crowded. Is there a quick way to stop itunes automatically nabbing all these downloaded clips and sticking them in the itunes library? I would ideally like to play them from a dedicated folder and for them to stay there!!
 
Hi

Just make Quicktime your default player for MP3 files instead of iTunes.

To do that, right click on one of the downloaded files and choose Open With>Other.

Choose Quicktime from the list and tick the 'always open with' checkbox.

Regards,

Steve
 
Thanks! Worked a treat. One of those 'it was right there in front of me but I couldn't see it' moments.
